Cream Cheese Drizzled Pumpkin & Cookie Butter Bars

Pumpkin, Cookie Butter, and warm Spices. With a yummy Cream Cheese Drizzle. Fall in your mouth – right here.

Cream Cheese Drizzled Pumpkin and Cookie Butter Bars

All I wanted were thick, moist, and drool-inducing bars that screamed fall to me. Pumpkin as one of the main ingredients was a must – no explanation needed. As I looked through the pantry my hand automatically reached out and grabbed the cookie butter jar. Once I opened the lid and smelled the wonderfulness that is cookie butter, I knew the flavors would work extremely well with pumpkin. I mean, cookie butter is basically made out of cookies and you can never ever go wrong with adding cookies to a dessert recipe. It’s a guaranteed winner!

The addition of semisweet chocolate chips, a yummy cream cheese drizzle, and extra cookie crumbs were always a given. There’s no such thing as a good pumpkin bar without cream cheese in one way or another. At least in my recipe book, ha.

If you’re as desperate as I am for the ultimate fall treat, this is the one for you. [Read more…]

Brown Butter Salted Caramel Espresso Bars

I hope you’re in the mood for some epic bars today.

Recently, I found myself digging through my baking pantry and discovered a container of chocolate covered espresso beans. Pretty sure I purchased those on a whim one day in Trader Joe’s and decided to hide them from myself. Burying the container amidst large bags of flour, sugar, and everything else you could possibly need to satisfy your baking addiction. Because I cannot be trusted around them.

You know that awesome feeling when you find something unexpectedly like a $10 bill in a pair of jeans you’ve forgotten about? That’s what I felt like after discovering my hidden chocolate espresso beans. After waiting a couple of weeks due to my forgetfulness, I was all about making a pan of bars featuring those espresso beans that I would remember for years to come. [Read more…]

Peaches and Mango Breakfast Bars

Breakfast Bars that are packed with nutrition and good-for-you ingredients. Plus, they taste amazing and are super family-friendly.

You know you’ve had a good week when two posts in a row involve a lovely glaze. A simple sweet glaze is the best way to finish off a rather indulgent dessert (see Wednesday’s post) or to dress up a healthy breakfast bar. Not that you absolutely need to add the glaze… unless you’re anything like me, in which case a glaze becomes a necessity. Sugar is life.

Speaking of which. In today’s recipe you’ll find only natural sugars (minus the glaze), but you would never know hadn’t I told you. If these bars aren’t prove that healthy food is utterly delicious and just as satisfying as other alternatives, then I don’t know what is.

Peaches and Mango Breakfast Bars

Gone are the days of a bowl of cereal or peanut butter toast for breakfast. Once you enjoy a Peaches and Mango Breakfast Bar it will be hard to go back to your old staples. The feeling of having dessert for breakfast is an absolute thrill. It sets me up for a fabulous start to my day every time.

Let’s make breakfast the best meal of your day too. [Read more…]

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Bars

Make the chewiest, fudgiest and most scrumptious No-Bake Bars ever. They’re all about chocolate, peanut butter and coconut!

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Bars

No-Bake Bars, you guys. Hands down one of my favorite things to make. It never ceases to amaze me how many different versions/combinations you can come up with when it comes to no-bake recipes. They’re highly adaptable and can be changed in so many different ways. I think I like making them so much because when it comes to actual baking, precision is critical. Measuring correctly and following instructions is so important.

Not when it comes to no-bake wonders, though. You can pretty much guesstimate and throw together anything you have a craving for. I have never had a no-bake treat I didn’t like.

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Bars

This one surpassed my expectations. As the recipe title indicates, there’s plenty of chocolate, coconut, and peanut buttery goodness to be found in each bite. But, there’s more. More coconut (in the form of coconut oil), a healthy amount of pecans for texture and yummy oats.

How can this combo not be delightful? [Read more…]

PB and Jelly Bars

 Peanut Butter and Jelly aren’t just best friends when it comes to sandwiches anymore. They’re taking over the dessert world and together make for some utterly scrumptious, delicious, and fun bars.

PB and Jelly Bars

We’re bringing Peanut Butter and Jelly back. At least in the Deliciously Yum Home. I can’t remember the last time I had a pb & jelly sandwich. Probably sometime back in High School. I have no idea why, but my husband decided to break out the peanut butter and jelly jars and devour one sandwich after the other over the last week or so. And I immediately took inspiration, of course.

PB and Jelly Bars

We’re basically looking at cookie bars. The crust and crumbly topping resemble a chewy peanut butter oatmeal cookie. With a generous layer of strawberry preserves in the middle.
